No I swear best movie ever!!11!!1!1!, Aight maybe not but we got a sneak preview at USC and the movie was so funny. I could not sop laughing, the characters that the movie has are awsome. GO SEE IT NOW!!!!

I go on-line check local Red Boxes for their inventory select what I want and reserve it. I usually do this Friday morning and get whatever new movies are out. So come Friday night after work I stop by pick up my hard to find New Release for a buck. Then drive by Blockbuster and wave to all the folks who have gone there to find out that the movie they wanted is sold out and they are now renting Out of Africa for five bucks.
yeah, I rent from machines now. There's one in safeway that charges a buck fifty/night. I usually keep a movie for only one day and pass by there every day, so its very convenient, cheap, and it always has the movie i want.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I just got done watching No Country For Old Men. I can only wonder what could've been. I sat there the entire movie, and I thought, man this movie is so good, but I have this feeling that the ending is going to be not what I expected, like the bad guy wins or something. And I was completely shocked at the end, I figured either what's his face (serial killer crazy insane dude dressed in black) is gonna die, or Tommy Lee Jones is gonna die, because one of them is probably gonna kill the other, and since I was expecting the unexpected I figured crazy insane dude was just gonna kill everyone and take the money. But I really wasn't expecting that ending lol. I've probably revealed enough to anyone who hasn't seen the movie, but damn, that ending really disappointed me. I feel like it didn't offer closure, which for me is essential to securing the movie as one of my all time favorites.

The movie works because it accomplishes the vision of the original book. NCFOM is a thematic movie, moreso than character-driven. The Coens have a knack for straying from traditional film structure- you didn't really have a "good guy protagonist" to root for, per se... there was Brolin's character, who played an average Joe- the audience wants him to get away with the money, but he still pulls off an unethical action (stealing money that's not his). Bardem's psycho character is definitely not the guy to root for, but he displays his own abstract sense of morality. And Tommy Lee Jones was the dude that verbalizes McCarthy's (the original book's author) overarching message- the world is becoming evil and good can no longer stop it... only fate can hope to stumble it...

Leaving out the death scenese for major characters is intentional to the overall theme. You're left wondering "wtf" during certain aftermath shots (and the ending) b/c the storytelling is so un-Hollywood. The movie's not wrapped up in a bowtie at the end and that surely pissed a bunch of people off.

/film geekness
I can definitely dig what you're saying. For the reasons you listed it is a good movie. I just wish it offered closure at the end, but I can see why they ended it like that. Overall though it was a good movie.

That's the 10% I was referring to earlier about No Country.

I saw it in the theater, I enjoyed it. Would I sit down and watch it again? Probably not, but it was good.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I saw 3:10 to Yuma this weekend, solid flick. I thought the ending was a little ridiculous with how they managed to get through the town with everyone and their mothers taking shots at them but still a good movie overall. Russell Crowe is a badass.

Aside from the classic "Money Shot" I do not think so. American Cinema has lost itself. No originality or creativness anymore. They keep trying to pass off last decades classics as this years blockbuster hype. In the end they just have a bust without the block.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

So I watched The Fugitive last night for the first time, and I realized that U.S. Marshals was like a sequel to it because in both movies Tommy Lee Jones plays Sam Gerard and he has his usual cast of U.S. Marshals in both. Are there any other movies out there with Tommy Lee Jones in it in that role? Was it a series of movies or did they just make U.S. Marshals as a sequel to The Fugitive?

It was more like a spin-off rather than a sequel, but yes, they just made US Marshals because of the success of The Fugitive.
